This fairly creepy video clip from American indie rock band, Grizzly Bear, depicts the bizarre adventures of a female figure skater after practice. Thankfully, because the peculiar theatrics are fittingly paired with vocal harmonies and a fluttering guitar, the reaction not as disturbing as it could be. Lead singer Daniel Rossen reassures listeners, “Take it all in stride, speak don’t confide.” His delivery genuinely eases any bad thoughts that could enter a listener’s mind, until the scary and chaotic cluster of sounds at the end.
The group from Brooklyn included this song as one of the lead singles off their latest album, Shields, out now on Warp Records. The video is directed by Emily Kai Bock and presented by The Creators Project.
